Disable Cloud Recording Password

Zoom is now set to automatically assign passwords to cloud recordings, preventing viewers from accessing the recording without a password. Recording passwords are different from meeting passwords. If you would like to use the passwords for the recordings, the email notification sent when the recording is ready contains the password, which can then be distributed to viewers.

Follow the steps below if you would like to remove the passwords from your recordings.
